Colonial Williamsburg Teacher Institute Scholarships

Teacher Institute at the Palace

Nationwide Scholarships

Applications are now closed for scholarships for the 2017 Colonial Williamsburg Teacher Institute in American History and to the 2017 Institute in American History and Content Area Literacy. These scholarships are the result of the generosity of many Colonial Williamsburg Foundation friends, their deep commitment and respect for teachers, and their knowledge of the teacher’s role in educating citizens and leaders of tomorrow.

If you would like to be notified when scholarships open for Teacher Institute 2018, please fill out the contact form here: Scholarship Interest Form

Note: Applying for a scholarship is not the same process as registering for a session of the Teacher Institute. Those able to pay their own tuition (did not receive a scholarship from Colonial Williamsburg) may register themselves online here: Register.
